Design has been extensively embedded within the undergraduate Engineering programmes through a restructuring of the curriculum to increase small group, project based learning. Complementing this strategy, a selection of product design themed final year projects is offered to the students to encourage innovation and to foster creativity. Feedback from the students regarding the new curricula has been extremely positive and final year projects are delivering innovative products with commercial potential.
